From the Billions website:
Hard on the heels of the US release of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds' electrifying fourteenth studio album, Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!, the band now reveals their intention to return to North America for their first live dates here in five and a half years. The new album, almost universally acclaimed as one of their very best, is off to the band's strongest sales start in SoundScan history. The tour, featuring Mr. Cave's first appearances at the famed Hollywood Bowl and New York's WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden, is brief, eagerly awaited and expected to sell out quickly. Look for most shows to go on sale this week.
